A very calm morning after a big thunderstorm last night.

After 2000km of Different roads through Europe I can truly say that the AWOL is a very special bike indeed. Crossing the Netherlands offroad in a light bikepacking setup, commuting on a daily base, touring Scotland fully packed. The AWOL can do it all, with grace. 


Unfortunately I have to give back this beast of a bike, it was a pleasure!

Cycling in Great Britain, from scone to scone…

Last campsite during our Scotland trip, almost time to return the AWOL. We had a wonderfull time together!

Salsa Selma in Monstercross (or should I call it Poldercross…?) mode.

Schwalbe Thunder Burt fast rolling offroad tires.Duo speed setup, 34-18 offroad, 37-15 gravel gearing. 
Exposure Revo Light + hub dynamo, wiring through right fork leg.       Some sort of weird offroad drop bar                                              Revelate Pika seat bag, framebag and bar roll for overnighters (not in the picture)

My Singlespeed 29’er just got a lot more versatile.

For the next 6 weeks my commute will be a bit longer, 45km one way, 90km a day. Time to put on some tri-bars and an alternative way carry my belongings. The Revelate Pike proves to be the most versatile bike storage ever! Maybe not the most beautiful way to use a racing bike, but certainly the fastest way to ride the long straight roads in Holland.

AWOL setup during our Trans Holland East West. Maybe the Netherlands is small and flat, we still got to ride 300km of challenging terrain, mostly offroad. Did the whole crossing in one go. 
It is a test AWOL deluxe without racks / fenders, but with Exposure hub dynamo and revo light, a small Deuter framebag and a Revelate Pike seat bag.
Again thanks for the nice picture, @Bas Rotgans
